There Are Towns Where You Can Get Arrested for Trick-or-Treating If You're Over 12?

October 10, 2018

There's really nothing more obnoxious than a bunch of high school kids trick-or-treating on Halloween. But this still seems like an extreme way to stop them. There are a handful of towns where kids over 12 who go trick-or-treating can actually get arrested.

One of those towns is Chesapeake, Virginia. They've got a statute that says anyone over 12 who goes trick-or-treating can be charged with a misdemeanor that carries up to a $100 fine, and SIX MONTHS in jail.

So, you know, if your teenager is planning to go trick-or-treating, you should probably go over the local city codes with them first to make sure they don't wind up with a record.
